Makeup Geek Eyeshadows Review & Swatches

Hey everyone!

How's your thursday evening going so far? Are you ready for the weekend?? I am so therefore, I'm posting this review today. As I have mentioned in a previous video or two, I've been getting into Makeup Geek eyeshadows lately. I've used many of them to create different looks and so far I'm pleased with the quality, pigmentation, color range, price and size. I am sure by now you've heard of Marlena the CEO from Makeup Geek. She has a Youtube beauty channel called Makeupgeektv and over the last few years she's come out with her own makeup line. How cool, right?

So below is a lengthy review of all most of her eyeshadows. **disclaimer: I paid for every single eyeshadow and no I'm not sponsored. I am missing a few eyeshadows that are out of stock currently.

Little tid bits before we start..... her eyeshadow pans are $5.99 each or eyeshadows in a compact each are $7.99. If you go the route I did with pans, you might want to invest in a couple magnetic palettes called Z palettes to store them in. Shop all Makeup Geek products by clicking here!

I've categorized the eyeshadow by color group to make it easier :) Some swatch photos are split for easy viewing too!

Finally, the swatching is over! Overall, I am very impressed with the quality and shade ranges from Makeup Geek. Some of these eyeshadows surpass a few of my high end eyeshadows and that says a lot. The price is outstanding for the amount of product and the pigmentation. Of course, with every brand there will be very good colors, some ok colors and then some that need a little more work. I can't complain about the variety offered or quality by Makeup Geek because the price is so affordable. Also, another side note, shipping was pretty fast and affordable too! 

I hope this review along with the swatches was helpful for you. I have done a few tutorials using some of these colors and they'll be more coming soon.
